Delicious

We ate here one night on our honeymoon as it was the only restaurant in Manarola open on a Thursday in low season. And it was completely packed! But they managed to find every customer a table. The food was very nice and the wine was reasonably priced. We sat in their covered terrace (for some... read more

This was the most appealing restaurant we saw in Manarola and it had some harbour views. Unfortunately, we found the dishes that we ordered to be very ordinary. The fettuccine with tuna and swordfish was overcooked and tasteless, but the anchovies with tomato and potato read as baked on the menu but seemed quite raw and almost inedible.

Wow. So I told my husband after the guy threw a bag of bread at us and when I looked around others had it in a basket that I found it odd for them to just give bread in a white bag. And he threw it at us. From that to him not really paying attention. The food- subpar at... More

This is a tourist restaurant handling large crowds and takes away the charm that the Cinque Terre Italian Riviera has to offer. The food was Ok but I would find a better place.

There were only two other customers, but I still had to go and give my order at the bar while the wait staff watched youtube.

We had a very nice seafood there. Probably one of the freshest we ever had. Location is also very nice just off the sea.

Food was good and the view was great. We had hiked all day and the opportunity to rest, drink, and eat a good meal while watching the sun set over the water was marvelous.

Our group of 4 adults was staying in Cinque Terra for 3 nights. Our accommodations were in Manarola. On the first afternoon we were in town, we wondered down to find a place for a late lunch. The view at Ristorante Marina Piccola is, in our opinion, the best in town. We sat in the open air area outside for... More
